Guest blogger Dyan Garris, author of Money and Manifesting

I am giving up the floor today (see how generous I can be) to author Dyan Garris. For many years Dyan Garris has been counseling clients in order to help them move forward in their lives. She is clairvoyant, clairaudient, and clairsentient. In addition, Dyan is also what is known as a voice recognition psychic and trance channel. This means that she can help her clients via telephone, which is how she conducted her readings throughout her career. She is a frequent radio guest on the Jay Grayce show at Tribeca Radio in New York City and has been interviewed by numerous other radio hosts. Recently, Mystic Pop Magazine interviewed her for their January/February issue. Living In Style TV featured her products in their 2007 holiday show.

Bowing out now, though you know it's hard for me.

Think Outside The Box - How Limited Beliefs and Fear Keep Us From Getting What We Want By Dyan Garris

What we believe definitely has power to shape our lives. The chatter that goes around in your head definitely has power to shape your life. But this is only part of the story. Ultimately it’s what you DO with your belief system that has power to transform your life.

For illustrative purposes, let’s say you live in a box. The inside of the box is cozy and comfortable. You’re happy in there. But the box has no windows. One day you decide you need to broaden your horizons so you gingerly cut a large hole in the side of the box. This gives you a very nice view of what is going on outside your living quarters. You gaze out in wonder from the safety of your little dwelling and you can see leafy green trees and other interesting shrubbery.

After a while you decide to expand your view so you cut a hole in the opposite side of the box. Now you have yet another view of the outside world. Out of this window you can see horses grazing peacefully right outside your box. You are amazed. You had no idea this was going on outside.

At some point you decide to open an additional portal on another side of the box. You’re a little scared by this because you now think you may be cutting too many holes in your abode. You begin to doubt yourself and start thinking that you may be making a place for rain to get in rather than expanding your view. You worry and fret about compromising the structural integrity of your box. But then you tell yourself that it worked out just fine on the other sides, so what could possibly go wrong?

You tell yourself that if you don’t cut the additional hole you do have a nice view out of two windows and maybe that’s just fine. But you’ve decided that you don’t want to be limited anymore; you want to see what else is going on out there. So you gather your courage and do it anyway. Now you have a completely different view. You can see a beautiful lake out there. You are in awe. You decide to do this on the remaining side too, this time with enthusiasm instead of fear. Now you have a panoramic view. It’s lovely and enjoyable and you are quite pleased with yourself for taking a few chances.

Some of you reading this were thinking that something bad was going to happen with all of this hole cutting. What is this based on? Why is your mind going to the negative? Study where these negative belief systems have originated from. Fear is very limiting and will keep you from getting what you desire.

Now here is what is important: You can sit there inside the box for the rest of your life, simply enjoying the view, or you can venture outside. You will discover that when you go outside you can ride the horses to greener pastures, eat the luscious ripe berries from the shrubbery, fish and/or swim in the lake. If you stay inside you can’t do any of that. You can sit in there and wonder when a fish will jump out of the lake and land on top of your box or when fresh berries will arrive at your doorstep. It is a choice.

Glad to have you back with us Dyan. I have no idea about this whole manifesting thing. Where would one start?

Awesome guest post. You know, I can really relate to this. For years, I've kept myself in a box going through the motions of living and it wasn't until I was forced to cut holes in my own box did I realize how much happiness there was out there only I never knew it. Awesome post, Dyan...

Thanks Dorothy! Dorothy, you were so missed!! I'm so glad you're back. Hi Cheryl! Manifesting is really a process and it does start with clearing limited beliefs and opening an energy pathway. Keep in mind that our belief systems were taught to us by our caretakers. No one came in here thinking their self-worth was tied up with their money. A very simple thing that someone can do to begin to open an energy pathway in a practical manner is to simply clear away all their old junk and particularly papers that no longer serve them. This begins to open the pathway for the energy of money or anything else. I think Dorothy found this out with her recent move,yes?
